Primary Blog/Recipes & Nutrition/Refreshing Smoothie Recipes for Summer

Smoothies are a perfect snack for any time of the day, especially during the hot summer months. Our family loves making smoothies, whether we’re lounging by the pool or on the go. They’re quick, nutritious, and delicious. Here are two of our favorite smoothie recipes that you can enjoy anytime.

Green Machine Smoothie

Our favorite smoothie is what we call the "Green Machine." It's packed with nutrients and is incredibly refreshing, thanks to a hint of mint.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  • Blend the Ingredients: Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Adjust Consistency: If the smoothie is too thick, add a little more almond milk until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Serve and Enjoy: Pour into a glass or a handy dandy water bottle for on-the-go enjoyment.

This smoothie is not only refreshing but also helps curb sugar cravings with its minty flavor. It’s loaded with protein and greens, making it a perfect post-workout snack or a nutritious meal replacement.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

For a more classic flavor, that kids love, try our Strawberry Banana Smoothie. It's a crowd-pleaser and easy to make with ingredients you probably already have at home.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries1
  • cup almond milk (or your preferred milk alternative)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)

Instructions:

  • Blend the Ingredients: Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Adjust Consistency: If the smoothie is too thick, add a little more almond milk until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Serve and Enjoy: Pour into a glass or a water bottle for a refreshing snack on the go.

For an extra hydration boost, try adding coconut water instead of almond milk. Coconut water is great for hydration and adds a subtle sweetness to the smoothie.

Tips for Making the Perfect Smoothie

  • Use Frozen Fruit: Keeping frozen fruit on hand makes it easy to whip up a smoothie without needing ice, which can water down the flavor.
  • Pre-portion Ingredients: For quick and easy smoothie prep, pre-portion your smoothie ingredients into freezer bags. Just grab a bag and blend with your preferred liquid.
  • Add Superfoods: Boost your smoothie nutritional value with superfoods like chia seeds, flax seeds, or a handful of nuts.
  • Experiment with Flavors: Don't be afraid to experiment with different fruits, vegetables, and add-ins like Greek yogurt or nut butters.

Smoothies are a fantastic way to stay hydrated and nourished during the summer. Whether you prefer the refreshing Green Machine or the classic Strawberry Banana, these recipes are sure to keep you cool and satisfied.
